Nintendo's 2013 is shaping up to be excellent. Through Spring, some highly anticipated games are releasing on the Wii U and 3DS -- the most notable being LEGO City: Undercover, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.
LEGO City: Undercover releases March 18 and puts you in the role of Chase McCain, a police officer and master of disguise. In pursuit of criminal mastermind Rex Fury, you explore a massive, open-world of LEGO City with tons of vehicles from real-life play sets. It's also the first LEGO game not based on a movie license. If you're looking for a 3DS version of this game, there is a prequel to the Wii U game called LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins. It arrives on the 3DS on April 21 and will follow the exploits of Chase McCain as a rookie cop.
The day after LEGO City: Undercover releases, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate releases on March 19 for the Wii U alongside a 3DS version. With more than 200 quests, the action RPG features more monsters and equipment crafting that fans of the series love.
Not to be forgotten, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon will release on the 3DS on March 24. The game sees Luigi travel through more mansions to capture more ghosts, because that's what Luigi does.
Some other notable games launching on the Wii U and 3DS through Spring are:
